Although somewhat spartan and designed for students, campus housing offers camaraderie and convenience. Fees are per person: $85/one night, $107/two nights, $125/three nights. Children under 10 are housed free if in a sleeping bag or portable crib; Yale does not provide cribs.
Campus renovations have dramatically altered suites: most have multiple bedrooms and a common room, and bedrooms are a mix of singles and doubles. Guests will usually share a suite with other attendees; single attendees may share a bedroom, and couples may be assigned to two single bedrooms. Families are kept together in a suite. Bathrooms are communal and may be co-ed or on another floor; their doors cannot be locked.
Private accommodations cannot be provided except for medical reasons. There are a limited number of handicapped-accessible rooms and rooms with non-electronic access (for religious observance). All requests for special accommodations must be received by Thursday, May 15th.
Beds are singles and permanent bunk beds are common; upper bunks are not assigned to the Classes of 1959-1974. Rooms have dressers, desks and chairs and other student furniture may be stored there. Yale provides linens (sheets, blanket, pillow, pillowcase), towels, washcloths, and soap. Campus rooms do not have phones, air conditioning, or fans. Most have overhead lighting only; a desk lamp may be requested and bringing a "book light" is helpful. Internet access is available and requires an ethernet cable. All Yale buildings are strictly non-smoking.
If you choose to stay in campus housing, please arrive at the gate serving as the college's main entrance. This gate will be marked by a large reunion banner; other college gates are usually locked. Main entrances are located as follows:
Branford: York St.
Davenport: York St.
Jonathan Edwards: High St. (unload on York St.)
Old Campus: College or High St.
Silliman: College St.
Timothy Dwight: Temple St.
Alumni from all classes may also stay in the New Residence Hall (NRH) on Tower Parkway near Payne Whitney Gym. NRH fees are $141/night per bedroom, with a two-night minimum. Suites consist of two bedrooms with two single beds each, and you may share a suite with other attendees. All suites have a furnished common room, a kitchenette and an in-suite bathroom; they are air-conditioned and handicapped-accessible with elevator access to all floors. Yale provides the same amenities (linens, etc.) as in residential college housing.
Families with young children should note that each suite contains four beds, and there is limited floor space to accommodate portable cribs or sleeping bags.
Alumni may submit roommate requests via their registration no later than Thursday, May 15th. Please contact your classmates first and then indicate your request when you register; each registration in the group must be received by the deadline and list all names in the group. While we are able to satisfy the majority of roommate requests, we are limited by room configurations.
With the exception of families with children and alumni with special needs, housing requests cannot be guaranteed or confirmed in advance. Please contact the AYA with any questions before registering.
